Marilyn Manson joined Alice Cooper onstage during the second song of Cooper's concert at B'Estival in Bucharest, Romania Sunday night (July 1). Manson headlined the festival, which marked the first time Cooper and Manson have ever shared the stage.

With regards to his rumored rivalry with Manson, Alice Cooper told Romania's, "We invented the shock on stage. Manson re-invented it for another generation. Despite all similarities, our music doesn't have that much in common: he's more industrial, we're [rooted] in classic hard rock."

Cooper said it's hard to shock an audience anymore.

"It's because of television and news," he said. "Reality is more shocking than fantasy."
